thursday, south carolina and senator jim demint announced he is retiring from the senate. his colleague and fellow south carolina senator lindsey graham pay him tribute on the senate floor. >> madam president, i met with jim demint this morning. to say i was stunned is an understatement. jim indicated to me that he will be retiring from the senate next year and taking over the presidency of the heritage foundation, one of the great conservative think-tanks here in washington. my reaction for the people of so my reaction for the people of south carolina is -- you have lost a great, strong conservative voice, someone who has championed the conservative cause and represented our state with distinction, sincerity, and a great deal of passion. on a personal level, i've lost my colleague and friend. jim and i've known each other for almost 20 years now and i think we've done a pretty darned good job for south carolina. at times playing the good cop, the bad cop, but always -- always trying to work together. and what differences we've had have been sincere, and that's the word i would use abou
. >>> to our political war room now. south carolina republican senator jim demint stealing the spotlight this week with his sudden resignation, sparking a lot of speculation about who might replace him. so who will it be and what will demin's departure mean for the gop? and it might not be the only shake-up within the republican party as rnc chairman reis up f e election as well. alex fini and caton dawson, as well. former chairman of the south carolina republican party, former adviser to the rick perry campaign. good to have you both on this saturday afternoon. before we get to the discussion, let me go ahead and address the big elephant in the room, kate dawson. you told reporters at the hill that you would be open to filling the seat that's being left vacant by senator jim demint. has the governor approached you? has she called you? >> craig, i put your name in the hat this morning. i remember when you carried a camera all over south carolina on your shoulder. you along with 1.2 million other people have asked for that job. governor hailey is going to make a solid pick. it's her choic
topics for a bit. news broke just before the program that republican senator jim demint is leaving. he decided to take over the heritage foundation. i have a question for you in that was this expected? he's a staunch conservative and opponent to craving into democrats and how do those things factor into a way ahead for republicans in the senate? >> i was surprised to hear that jim demint was giving up his senate seat to become head of the heritage foundation, a conservative think tank in washington. it surprised me. i suppose if it surprised me, it surprised a lot of washingtonians as well. i didn't have any indication he was ready to give up that seat from south carolina. running the heritage foundation is an important position in washington. a lot of influence among conservatives, among republicans. i'm sure he's going to have his work cut out for him there. you're right. it does give up that seat from south carolina. south carolina is a pretty red state and once there are elections in south carolina, assume another republican will be elected from south carolina. it's unlikely that i
president of the black chamber of commerce. dennis: tea party favorite senator jim demint leaving the senate to run the heritage foundation. cheryl: fascinating move by the senator. coming up on the top of the hour. stocks every 15 minutes with nicole petallides on the floor of the stock exchange. nicole: today is a day on wall street we are nottfar from the unchanged line when you look at major market averages. investors 6 points and everyone eagerly awaits the all important jobs report number tomorrow which is arguably the most important economic report we get each month but the tech have been nasdaq composite is something grabbing folks's attention. apple has been under pressure, that is the different story today. here's a look at the nasdaq composite up 1/2% which brings me to apple. apple has been under intense scrutiny. we have seen stock sell-off more than 20% from highs that it hit in september. it traded as low as 518 today and yet people running in and scoop at up and here it is at 551. certainly has been jostled around, back in positive territory and a buying opportunity. cheryl:
jim demint calls the idea quote, outlandish. >> republicans should not be conceding that the federal government needs more money negotiating with ourselves and teating the president's proposal like it's serious. >> republican house speaker john boehner has come out against any tax hike and has refused to bring the democratic plan for a vote. >>> the dow fell almost 14 points. nasdaq lost 5 1/2. the s & p fell 2 1/2 points. >>> yahoo is buying another silicon startup. sunnyvale's yahoo acquired on the air today. the service enables users to hold online video chats in a talk show foremated. >>> a monstrous typhoon has killed 74 people in the philippines and the deattoll is expected to rise. 23 of the people drowned in flooding caused by the typhoon. the storm made landfall yesterday and some 60,000 people have fled to emergency shelters. the crowded shelters in this new video. the typhoon is expected to continue to dump rain for several days. >>> a major pot growing operation inside this house, how police actually discovered it and the owner's reaction when he saw all of this for the f
cuts. this republican defeatism news broke of jim demint's departure from the senate yesterday. is he a tea party warrior and demint is a hero to part of the g.o.p.'s 2010 midterm route. now he is off to head off a think tank the heritage foundation. let's face it the g.o.p. needs new energy. it needs branding help. heck, we have a lot of issues resolve amongst ourselves before we even from a hope of rebuilding the movement to appeal to new generations of voters. of course, libertarians and social conservatives are probably never going abortion and gay marriage. they must find a way to agree on other critical issues. republican con sis tans on globalization, immigration reform, the china threat or middle east policy. conservatives couldn't even agree on sensible steps on healthcare reform other than to repeal obama care. the republican party will continue to be adrift unless conservatives, still the most influential group within the party have a clear sense of what they stand for and what policies will best serve their cause and the nation's. so beyond the fiscal cliff resolution, we
was jim demint, the senator from south carolina who surprised everybody and announced yesterday that he is stepping down from the senate. what does that say about him b conservatives in the congress? what does it is a about the senate. >> it says a couple things. one, he gets a nice payday now, will make some decent money and he's not a rich guy. to the by senatorial 12ds anyway. second i think it says he's not a legislator. he is good at filibustering, blocking things in the snachlt he has never been somebody crafting complicate -- legislation, cutting deals. he's not involved in that. and i think finally, i think is the big story, like a lot of people in the tea party he likes the purity, he likes the bold stroke. he doesn't like the messy-- messiness in politics n my few people like that tend to marginalize themselves. they tend to go off to a place they can be pure but as a result of that going off to where they can be pure, they make themselves more marginal. i think that is what demint is doing and a lot of people in the tea party would say i would rather be pure and in 9 fight an
south carolina, senator jim demint. it seems rather sudden. amy, why do you think it's happening now? >> i don't know. i think that's something ed can speak to a little better. he covers congress. >> ed, jump in. >> don't worry about it. he was slated to become the republican on the congress committee. he had to get out now or else he would have to put together a staff. made sense for him to go now. secondly, leaving and essentially announcing it now gives the governor enough time over the next few weeks to make a decision who to put in. he made it clear he wasn't running for election when he was up in 2016. there were some rumblings he would leave early. some people do this when they announce they aren't running again. sets up a fantastic scenario for republicans. all the talk around tim scott. he's a congressman, a black republican, very conservative. what would it say that the state that once elected strom thurmond to the senate would potentially have the only black man in the senate and he just so happens is a republican. you would put potentially tim scott in the senate, have hi
and certainly in the senate was an issue, as jim demint left. he is going to run heritage. you have paul ryan and marco rubio speaking at a jack kemp dinner. and i want to play a piece of sound from each of them. and it says something about how they see the future of the republican party. >> i've heard it suggested that the problem is that the american people have changed. that too many people want things from government. but i'm still convinced that the overwhelming majority of our people, they just want what my parents had, a chance. >> both parties tend to divide americans into our voters and their voters. let's be really clear. republicans must steer far clear of that trap. we need to speak to the aspirations. we must speak to the aspirations and the anxieties of every american. >> newt, that's a long way from the 47% of mitt romney. >> well, first of all, every republican should be focussed on what we just talked about. i mean, if their competitor in '16 is going to be hillary clinton, supported by bill clinton and presumably a still relatively popular president barack obama, trying to w
capitol hill, one of the senate's conservative leaders, jim demint of south carolina is quitting. he announced his resignation yesterday saying he will leach the senate january 1. demint will head a conservative think-tank now. south carolina's governor says there is no time table to announce demint's replacement. >> a lot of people are questioning this why he will take over the heritage foundation. his salary in the senate is $174,000. he is replacing a guy who, the head of the, the heritage foundation was making roughly $1 million a year. get, got a little bit of an increase. in salary. >> all of these politicians, go on to a lobbying, think-tank, consultant work, all that kind of stuff, they leave for big bucks there. he's considered one of the grandfathers of the tea party movement. a powerful gift. at odd with party leadership. have to wonder did that play a role? tired of the politics on capitol hill? he felt going to the think-tank would allow him to be in a great position to better spread the conservative message didn't get done as well as he thought it could be in the last e
in the house and the senate are on board. jim demint, republican senator from south carolina. >> this is a time to negotiate with ourselves. we need to invite the president to work with us. his proposal was so outlandish, i don't think we should go back to the table until he puts something there that we can work with. the president has known about this fiscal cliff for over a year. and many of his decisions caused us to be in this position. >> how much of a problem does boehner have with other republicans potentially? >> it's a big problem. it's always been his problem. it's been a problem for the republican party since they started taking that no tax pledge 30 years ago. what is revenue increase? is closing deductions and loopholes a revenue increase? and if so, do you have to oppose that? i think what we see going on in the republican party right now is a fight between the stalwart, no new tax whatever conservatives and those who believe that they have a responsibility to keep the country from going over the fiscal cliff in the short term and in the long-term. and as jessica was pointing out
parting advice when he did. we are talking about senator jim demint. >> it didn't win in south carolina and the republicans that were eec lected run on limited government and less taxes. they shouldn't give in to that and the princele is wrong . the president doesn't have a plan. all it is is a political trophy to the left. we need to do what is good for america. taxing the rich is not going to help the middle class. >> brian: he has four years left on a second term. he's done more for the tea party movement. you talk about marco rubio and senator cruz in texas. >> steve: ram paul. >> brian: ram paul. i am stunned he would leave in a position of leadership and a go to guy to go to the heritage foundation. >> steve: the heritage foundation is a think tank and in the u.s. senate he is one of hundred voices and over there he will be taking over the guy. >> gretchen: money is number one. $174,000 as a senator and may not be the insentative and make over a million bucks and he said it was an honor to be asked. if could be frustration, too. look, he believed that could you wantry is facing a
the surprising resignation of tea party favorite jim demint. it seems kind of sudden. why now? >> everybody was surprised about this. but i seems in the aftermath of the election the republicans are still in the minority of the senate. demint was in the minority of the minority. that's not a very powerful place to be. demint always known as a bomb thrower, someone who liked to make trouble. he figured he's probably correct about this he could have more power and influence and be less restrained from the outside advocating for his ideas which has also been his first priority. >> david, what about congressman tim scott? that's a person most being talked up as a replacement. why if so if it's true? >> although he's just finishing his first term in the house, he has a lot of support from the tea party but also he worked well on the establishment on the republican side. john boehner tapped him to be one of the young leaders. i think there's also the factor he's african-american. there's no other african americans in the senate. he'd be the only one i think the republican side in congress. at a t
the tea party's maker jim demint, he will leave office left a hole in the senate at a crucial time. the leading contenders are tim scott, gresham bare rhett, henry mcmaster, nathan valentine and my next guest, congressman from south carolina. it's great to have you here. you are on the short, short list of people to fill the seat. you were quoted saying if the governor were to ask you, you will take the job. but the big question is, do you want the job? >> oh, sure. i think any politician who tells you he wouldn't like to be a united states senator is lying to you. we talked preliminarily with senator demint about what would happen if he retired in 2016. we have given it some thought. any person it's offered to would take it. >> have you spoken to the governor about this, yet? if so, what has the discussion been like? >> i have not. i have friends of hers. we served in the legislature together. i was in the house with her for two years. i have several friends in her office. i have spoken to them, not the governor directly. >> do you feel you have an inside track into her thoughts o

jim demint is off to run a think tank. let's see what parts he'll be imparting. on economic policy, he believes the stimulus was a mugging, a fraud. his wisdom on human rights, guys shouldn't be allowed to teach. and gender studies, let's just say he was one of the first to stand with todd akin after his legitimate rape comments and it turns out that the party didn't even have a clue even though they pretended to. >> the party which you acknowledged which erupted last week was todd akin's comments which, unfortunately, have made him unelectable. >> he's unelectable, said senator cornyn. only today we learned that the senator's committee quietly gave mr. akin $760,000 to boost his campaign. and then there's mr. on air meltdown rove. >> do you believe that ohio has been settled? >> no, i don't. >> so you're not saying that obama isn't going to win, you're just -- >> i think this is premature. i don't know what the outcome is going to be but we've got to be careful about calling things when you have 991 votes separating the two candidates. >> the polls were wrong, then, and he thinks that
boehner's deal. senator jim demint says the tax hike will destroy american jobs. the coke brothers say leaves conservatives wanting. the heritage foundation said the proposal was asking republicans to go back on their promise not to raise taxes. so there is pushback. >> there is push back. it's not surprising there's push back, given the fact this is essentially on economic issues. all that the republican party has stood for for decades now. but what's going to be important to look for is what are those numbers. i think there are going to be a certain number of republicans who don't vote for it. that's a given. you have to look at how many republicans do vote for it. the question here is will those republicans who support a compromise deal, support increased taxes face a backlash in their own primaries? will they suffer at the ballot box? i think if you have a good, substantial chunk of the republican caucus going along with the deal, there are safety in numbers so they can't be voted out, they can't be primaried in that same way if a lot of them go along with it. >> now, a lot of this
